The space where design and desire nest together is of relentless interest to me.  It is a contemporary condition to which we are all vulnerable.  These works enlist my own taste as subject. Images used, whether for the orientation of their form or the objects that they depict, use the transparency of my desires and visual appetite to probe burning questions: What is the intrinsic value of visual appeal?  What are the consequences of a culture seduced by images? And finally, how can I reconstruct these images to allow for new narratives?
